"Neither chemistry nor physics have ever been strong points for me, so sometimes I need these things explained at a very basic level. :)"

Elizabath, it's very simple. When atoms get collided each other, it's get broken in to pieces and energy is releasing through these process.

"thanks for the comment but I'm not sure I totally understand. How would this make them even longer lasting? Can you explain a bit?"

Elizabeth, in both cases atoms are moving and collide to release energy. The same principle of Nuclear reactor.

"I think this self-healing effort is a good one as well, though, because it will help these batteries last longer in general so they don't have to be replaced."

Elizabeth, if batteries having self healing with fission or fusion technology, then it can be a long last one; otherwise one day it will get drained.

That's a really good point, Mydesign. I think this self-healing effort is a good one as well, though, because it will help these batteries last longer in general so they don't have to be replaced. Some people have argued that it's not often long-lasting batteries are replaced but I beg to differ. But you're right, to increase the actual usage time of a battery--ie, how long it holds its charge--is probably an even more important aspect of batteries to be working on.

"The other day I saw a video on these self healing materials, and I was amazed by this invention. Certainly it can find numerous applications in the engineering world specially in the polymer industry."

Taimoor, what's the specialty in polymer industry?

"In this fast moving world manufacturers need to constantly look for product developments through research and development. "

Shehan, idea is good but all depends up on business and ROI. In current fluxuating market, none of the companies, including giant MNc's don't want to make too much investment for R&D

Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?

In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
